Five Useful Tips for Durable Summer Camp Furniture

Posted by Janet Voigt on Fri, Aug 11, 2017 @ 02:11 PM
The weather might not agree but the calendar says it is time to start planning for summer.  Summer camp administrators and leaders have been busy attending national and regional conferences like the American Camp Association and Christian Camping & Conference Association to learn how to maximize camp attendance and programming.

We have put together a few tips for facility operations and development that focus on furniture as a transformative part of camp operations.

Outdoor Furniture for Your camps.

 

1. Turn Outdoor Space into a Classroom, Theater, Worship or Eating Space.

 
 
Outdoor space is a hallmark of summer camps but is often underused or used as a dedicated nature-scape. There are simple ways to turn green space into multi-use space.
 
  • Thermoplastic coated metal furniture like benches and picnic tables are weather-proof ways to invite the classroom and meals outside.
  • Options like Molded Plastic Stacking Chairs are not all-year weather hardy but they can withstand summer sessions left outdoors and can convert any area into a theater, worship center or classroom. 
  • Solid wood Adirondack Furniture is still a classic for outdoor, heavy-duty seating that will stand the test of time.

A unique feature of summer camps is that there is an expectation that the facilities will be organized to accommodate a maximum number of sleepers in as efficient a space as possible.
  • That is why bunk beds are such a natural fit for camps, conference and retreat centers – they sleep two people in essentially the same space as a single bed.
  • Both metal and solid wood bunk bed options are popular for camps who want durable, long-lasting sleep surfaces that are easy to maintain.
  • Frequently, ladder-end beds or integrated, vertical ladders are used to keep floor space free.
  • Storage for campers’ personal items is also very efficient with the use of items like underbed storage chests or tall, divided cabinets that allow campers to neatly store their stuff while not overwhelming sleeping rooms with bulky furniture.
